Great Manamo 2009-03-10 9:08

Hello Whitney,
I like the atmosphere in this picture! I could already sense it with the thumbnail!
I don't think the composition is optimal with those trees in the middle. For me, they're the anchor in your compo. But you don't wanna place your anchor in the middle of the picture because it drains all the attention there. Instead, when on a third, the viewer will obviously get drawn to the trees, but his eyes will want to wander on the rest of the frame...
But I really do like the atmosphere, so who cares about the compo...
take care,

Default To Manamo: thanks for the suggestion

Thanks for weighing in on the framing! I wasn't sure about it myself. I guess I was trying something to see if it worked--a very formally composed arrangement of a wild natural scene. You're probably right about the rule of 1/3s being a better choice; I never thought of the "anchor" as drawing attention down that way before. I also have a horizontal compo that doesn't include those logs, and friends I ask to judge the two photos are always split between them; maybe I'll post that one to workshop to see if it works better.
